Judges selected RDNS as winner after considering its strengths in home based healthcare, nursing and support services, underpinned by world class quality and safety frameworks, consumer directed care (CDC) philosophies and leading ICT solutions including telehealth.
RDNS was one of six organisations in the running for the award, competing with a finalist’ field from Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and Australia.
Chairman of the RDNS Board Mr Paul Montgomery is delighted with the win. “We are very fortunate at RDNS to have dedicated teams of people across Australia, New Zealand, China and other parts of Asia whose mission is to provide care for people in their senior – or silver – years,” Mr Montgomery says.
“Many countries are grappling with specific challenges that were quite unforeseen not so long ago: people are living longer, chronic disease is more challenging than ever and the cost of aged care is stretching public purses to uncomfortable limits.
“We are constantly addressing these issues through our home care operations, our research, our partnerships with government, industry and education institutions and through our education and training activities that now have an extensive reach into Asia.
“We very proud and honoured to have won this award,” he says.
The award was presented at the 6th Ageing Asia Investment Forum conference dinner in Singapore where 300 international delegates from business, government and community sectors gathered to discuss the challenges of ageing populations in the Asian region.
